The Blockchain technology, which creates a permanent and transparent report on transactions, has a huge potential for solving complex logistics problems. Blockchain isa secure digital transaction book, managed by a network of computers which provides a permanent record of information about the transactions of all users.
Each transaction or “block” is written sequentially in the register. The consolidated report on transactions includes a progressive series of “blocks” that constitute the “chain”. Each “block” or “mark” of transactions is checked by a cryptographically authorized set of participants, which makes it impossible to damage or change the recorded information.
